Description

North Korea still hasn’t denuclearized, and nuclear arms control treaties are being shredded at a furious pace. Join us for a conversation with Rick Wayman, Deputy Director of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, who will discuss these dangers along with two important reasons for hope: the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons and the Nobel Peace Prize.
